s1mple, f0rest wasn't even the best 1.6 player
average fpl player is as good as f0rest at his peak in 1.6 XD
s1mple still g.o.a.t in counter-strike
S1mple obviously. The only 1 who could compete with him in terms of peak was Markeloff 2009-2011.
Recency bias is strong in this thread.
S1mple >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> f0rest
Such a stupid question... S1mple all the way.
Simple is still didn’t reach his peak
f0rest, only because he won about 4 "major" tournaments in 1.6 and s1mple won only 1, if we consider ESL One Cologne as "major"
you cant comapre them as s1mple didnt reach his peak yet
f0rest by far.
btw i am f0rest.
s1mple is miles ahead of any player in history in terms of raw skill and talent.
>A lot of people say S1mple
I believe f0rest was better at his peak than S1mple is rn , BUT if S1mple continues his form for like 2-3 years he will definently be best INDIVIDUAL player ever.
F0rest, neo, getright, sunde, heaton, markeloff>>>>>>>>>>>>simple
@s1mpleO is the best in history.
95% of u didnt even remember f0rest rofl, how could u at 5y old age
kinda hard tbh but if u only check stats csgo and 1.6 simple is higher and better
And its like comparing fastest man in 1950 vs Usian Bolt ..everything evolve, even if u compare fastest car in 1980 vs now.
yeah "s1mple ofc", one year later someone else will be best ever
s1mple seems to be the best player ever as for me and stats can't lie.
f0rest is probably the best counterstrike player but not the best in cs go or 1.6 (imo though 1.6 he surely was a top 3 player)
s1mple is a GOD. f0rest is just a human being.
S1mple is Godlike consistently. No one ever could do it like him.
Man S1mple is a GENIUS of CSGO.
ccs1.6 GODS scene
s1mple ofcourse. he is #CSGOD
f0rest by far, maybe if s1mple can hold his form for longer
Note how all the people saying s1mple have an id between 250-350k as well as other similar habits, 100% one sad old 30 year old dude with 25+ alts lmao
i respect history, but s1mple is just kinda untouchable rn. maybe in future we will see someone better, but now he is legend and the best ever!
S1mple is fan of forest boyz. Forest was 500x better than this baiter
f0rest ofc. The best CS player of all time.
s1mple ofc. u didn't to aim in 1.6, just good xhair psitioning, movement, and spray control. in csgo u need to be fast n accurate
s1mple is just trash tryharder with over 20k hours in both games combined. There are way more talented players than him.
f0rest, the GOAT. Btw markeloff/kennyS best peaks ever
s1mple = RpK = Neo
you can't compare the peaks of the best players of all 3 cs games..
this guy is comparing the goat forest with simple. smh. no comments.
Comparing people in such a manner is completely pointless tbh
f0rest is a legend
f0rest 30 yo
s1mple only 20 and he still can play 10 more years on this level
two completly different games duh...
if you're going to compare anyone x y z who's better or w/e u won't be able to achive anything..
look at gtr, forest, olof, cold, kenny etc etc all the best players in the world before but you can't have some player dominating the game forever... I did say in 2016 that in two years people are going to forget about cold because there will be someone new who's going to be at his prime, truth being said I expected niko and not simple(mainly because of his history) but hey...
All the pros, analysts and casters consider s1mple top1 of all time and here at HLTV retard city we have people dusagreeing
If we're talking about raw skill & ability to play then it's definitely f0rest. He's been very good at 1.6 and GO. He has played for a very very long time and still is able to play very good. f0rest's natural skill is probably unmatched.
1.6 requires more individual skill than CSGO so it's f0rest. I got my flame shield up, bring it ya clueless millennials.
1.6 had way better players than shit CS Go, f0rest earned his rep against the best players of all time in this game while s1mple plays against other pug stars you cannot even begin to compare this shit.
10.markeloff like 2yrs of cs1.6
if you think simple u know shit bro f0rests 3 year 1.6 peak was highest ever in history of both cs's even kennys 2014 peak cant be compared f0rest played out of his his mind for the first 3 years in fnatic was second in 2006 though gap wasnt really high between him and zet already was best aimer cs 1.6 would have ever see 2007 best player undoubtly 2008 best player 2009 second there his peak ands but still stays monster being top 20 player in 1.6 was very hard coz of high skill gap even though in later years of 1.6 he was mainly top3-5 its still pretty decent like top 10 player in 1.6 top1-2 in csgo
im pretty sure that 80% of you guys didnt even watch forest playing in 1.6
f0rest.He is still good in CSGO even he is 30 already
Ofc it is f0rest coz he done it in 1.6 which had bigger skill gap and was harder mechanically
what you mean with destroyed cloud9
no1 is close to s1mple yet gtr neo etc could all also be best 1.6 players
both nicknames are autistics
No player has ever played at simples level in any cs version. The only player from 1.6 with an aura like simples was probably neo.
s1mple ofc 1.6 played like noobs only aim
Someone should watch a vid where get right says s1mple carry in starladder is the highest level of performance he has seen in all iterations
Imagine having to go through life looking like s1mple though.
1.6 Neo, forest, gtr > s1mple
f0rest any day
f0rest dominated whole scene for years
what did s1mple? eco/exit frags for years, finally got carried by electronic and flamie to some victrories in tournaments
only swedistan braindead think their players are/were good
s1mple won 2 tier1 tournments in his whole carreer lol
too bad, kids think getting more frags > everything LMAOOO
players like olof, cold, get right at their peak got 234982304234 mvps winning t1 tournments
s1mple always go ham but almost never wins
cs is 5x5, stop counting only frags kids! cs is way more than that.
These players all had their eras. You can divide these into different categories like most trophies, highest individual level, bla bla...
If we look at it from a purely individual level then obviously TODAYS CS will count higher than past performances, especially from an old game like 1.6. S1mples current level is higher than any other player.
Cold, Get_right, olof all had the BEST teams in their respective eras.
But if we straight up compare individual accolades and trophies then obviously s1mple doesnt hold a candle to the former guys. But who knows how long CS:GO will last and what s1mple will achieve in that time. The thing is that he is just 20(?) years old and has alot of years left.
And also, if S1mple wins HLTV #1 player for 2018 then he'd really only need a major win to really cement his place as #1 of all time
f0rest cuz he was drug addicted at his peak and still was besterest
